West Ham join race for Man Utd target Mario Gomez

West Ham boss Slaven Bilic is interested in Beşiktaş striker Mario Gomez according to the Fanatik.

Bilic was quoted as saying: “Mario Gomez and Gökhan Töre would be a hit in England and are players every manager would want to see ın their team.”

The Hammers could face competition from Manchester United who expressed an interest in Gomez according to Telegraph and FoxSport last month.

Beşiktaş signed Gomez on a loan fee worth €3.5 million over the summer transfer window with an undisclosed buyout clause option.

The Black Eagles want at least €20 million for Gomez but do not technically own his contract on a permanent deal as of yet.

The Germany international could in theory decide to stay at Fiorentina who could go on and sell him to the highest bidder over the summer if Beşiktaş do not activate his buyout option.

Gomez has hit the ground running at Beşiktaş scoring 15 times and providing three assists in all competitions.
